tv Right This Minute ABC August 13, 2012 4:30pm-5:00pm EDT
hello everybody. i'm beth troutman. we searched the web pour the best videos of the date. let's get started "right this minute." a shocker inside a filthy home. after a little girl is discovered -- >> in an animal cage. >> the outrageous story about how she got there and what finally led to her rescue. a revealing video shows things the military doesn't want you to see. now meet the guy who lived it and posted it.
>> has anybody from the marine corps asked you to remove the video? >> yes. a pregnant dog is abandoned on the streets. she was covered in flees. her fur was matted. how she and her pups got a new life and a new look. >> this is an extreme dog makeover. it's an end-of-summer treat. jumping off a cliff has never looked so fun. this first story is shocking. it is heartbreaking and it is difficult to watch. in this video from kprc you're seeing a child inside a cleveland, texas, home. according to police, this 16-month-old girl was being kept in an animal cage inside this home. according to police, there were small cockroaches crawling all around this baby. it had flee and tick bites all over its body. it was drinking from a dir ti
bottle and living in a home filled with trash, hold and even feces. >> basically they were crate training their baby. >> there's even more to this story. people made phone calls that there were starving horses, dogs and cats on the property. police came to the scene, they did find emaciated horses, cats and dogs, even one horse corpse. then they went inside the home and discovered this child, something that was completely shocking. then it turns out the parents, mabel larson and aaron parker had five children taken away from them in 2009 and their parental rights completely terminated. >> so they just got pregnant again and didn't tell anybody about this child? >> exactly. kprc did talk to a representative from cps and the representative wanted to make clear that they knew nothing about this child. >> we had no indication that this woman was pregnant.
we did not know there was a child in this home. >> once parental rights were terminated for this couple's other five children, that case was closed. according to law, cps couldn't make drop-by visits. the mother, mabel larson is currently behind bars, held on animal cruelty charges. aaron parker, the father, has also been taken into custody. >> i'm glad she's in better hands now. i've got a video, a raw unsanitized look at what it's like to be a marine. some can be offensive. >> this is bull [ bleep ]. >> we're just wasting our [ bleep ] lives. they want us to stand up here for six hours? >> this is how we provide front security. >> much of this video was shot between 2004 and 2006 in afghanistan. >> give me, give me, give me this. >> a lot of the kids in the area will beg candy, beg for gum or a
pen. >> you got a glow stick or something cool to give them? >> help us understand more about what it's like to be on the ground and maybe to describe some of what's heard in this video, we've got one of the guys in the video joining us via skype. brock, why post this now? >> it was meant to show within our platoon, the inside jokes we were dealing with, frustrations we were dealing with. it was entirely meant to be sarcastic. we were making fun of ourselves. >> when you look back at some o guys said. >> if you had this, i'd probably kill you. >> how do you view that or explain that? >> it was never meant to be politically correct. we apologize if we did offend anybody. it was not meant as a personal attack on the kids there. >> my brother was a marine in the first war in iraq. he said a lot of people don't
understand how much downtime you got. >> it's nothing like the commercials they're showing. in reality, it's 99% downtime and 1% in action. this was filmed a long time ago and we were young. we were stupid in a sense. but we made fun of our stupidity. >> there's video that shows pretty intense fire fights, some heavy bombing. >> we're getting attacked again. >> describe those scenarios for us? >> it's confusing. i'd say it's confusing until you know where the fire is coming from. >> once you know where the fire is coming from, that's when all your training kicks? >> has anybody from the marine corps asked you to remove the video? >> yes. that's why we waited until we were out to post it. we're venting, so to speak. >> we did reach out to the marine corps and said we're still trying to identity the authenticity of this video. >> hell yes! [ bleep ]. >> we know fire happens in the
summer when it's dry, a lot of brush. check out this fire that happened in the middle of a thunderstorm in tampa, florida. the video was captured by a neighbor. you see the flames, the skies are gray. you can hear the rain. in some parts of the video you can also hear the thunder. you do see the fire trucks arrive and they very qckly start fightg tisfire. >> k burning? is it the brush and the trees burning approaching the house? >> the house is on fire. >> the person who was filming this seems incredibly calm. >> i would be getting my stuff out of the house, never mind taking video. >> because the flames are huge. you can tell this is a very strong fire. we can't confirm what caused the fire. but it may have been caused by lightning. you see the firefighters, and at one point the entire house is
just releasing a ton of smoke as the firefighters are fighting the flames. you never think of what it's like to fight a fire in a thunderstorm in a area. >> the commenter in the video who claims to be the diver in the first engine says when they got there it was an intense seen. everyone was out of the house. he does say the house and all its contents were a total loss. check out this capsized boat. it was found in the atlantic about 500 miles off the azors by the people filming this. they called the coast guard and said the people on the boat got off okay. this boat was first reported capsized in february of 2011, but in june of this year these people sailed by it. check out what may they do, they get under water and see what they find. they've got cameras. you'll see what they saw. they've got their harpoons and going fishing because there's
easy pickings. >> watch what else they see down there? >> that's a big whale. >> that's a sperm whale sitting there. he was close enough to get up to it to touch it. >> that's brave. i would not go close. >> what's interesting is how all these small fish are following the sperm whale, like hey, where are you going? >> they probably thought the boat was some sort of whale taking them to food. >> this whale is like, i'll hang out, i'll let you film me. >> this takes your breath away. we're just seeing it on video. can you imagine being the guy with the harpoon and coming up on this giant whale? >> capsized boat in the middle of nowhere is creepy. very eerie, the silence of it. the boat is sitting there and you jump in and get the sensation of a giant whale nearby. >> it's close to seeing his eye. >> i wish he would have gotten a shot of a whale and the boat together to give us an idea of the size.
gather around the television set, boys and girls, because it's time for the best of rtm where we tell you about bonus videos. >> you know the long exhaustive back to school lists to find all kinds of stuff? >> yes. >> i have a prank video going into the store. >> helen keller's version of row set that stone. >> take a look at this video, head to our website, rightthisminute.com and click on. >> best of rtm. i have a sweet, lovely dog to tell you about. her name was asha.
